Saturday Morning Music Events – Free Concerts at the UGT Every Saturday

Highlighting Local Performers

11th February 2017 – 10am – 12 noon. Venue Opens at 9.30am

Ukuleles galore followed by the classic Rock and Pop of RetroBeat.

Melisa Mia, singer, has been performing since the age of 15 in musicals, dance shows and concerts. She is inspired by the work of the late Bowie and one day aspires to pursue a career in song writing. She has been writing songs ever since her rebellious teens and has finally, after years in hiding, reawakened her passion for singing with this live band. RetroBeat is a nostalgic throwback with a twist!

Vince Carter, guitarist and song writer, has been gigging,writing and recording original music since the mid ’70s. He had some success during the ’70s through to the ’90s with his band’s single played on radio 1 by the late John Peel, many reviews in the Melody Maker and an interview on Radio Caroline along with four of his songs broadcasted.  He has also played many support slots and toured with name bands.  He now continues to write his own material alongside playing some old favourites with RetroBeat.

Gyn Horn, bassist, has been playing in bands since the age of 16. Coming from a musical & entertainment background where members of her family ‘trod the boards’, sang and played a wide range of musical instruments, she was encouraged to take up various instruments herself, including the drums and the bass. Also a composer and songwriter she has enjoyed success with sales of her music (including electro and trance with ‘Gadimers Horizon’) through such outlets as Amazon and ITunes. Growing up in the ’60s and ’70s and being a member of RetroBeat means she is able to play, and enjoy the material from her youth!

Oll Sterno, whose drums propel the heartbeat of the group, began drumming, as his father did before him, at an early age. Rocking with r’n’b groups around London during the ‘60s and ‘70s, Oll formed a real love for the music of the time. After a successful teaching career in London, he moved to the Eastbourne area where he settled into the music scene starting with the Two Bob Band. No longer hoping for fame and fortune, Oll now simply enjoys creating live sounds in the company of talented musicians and interested punters!

Throughout their performance, Fairtrade coffee and tea and home-made cakes will be on sale in the Under Ground coffee-bar – which will stay open until 4pm for viewing of the latest foyer art exhibition.

Entry is free.
